Catharine Roehrig and Janice Kamrin
The other night, we went to Chicago House for dinner (http://wp.me/pBBFl-T). The JEM expedition members lived at Chicago House during our first two seasons, before moving to the New Memnon Hotel (http://wp.me/pBBFl-k6) on the west bank, so visiting there is like going home. Dinner ended with a slightly belated celebration of Diana’s birthday with a marvelous cake topped by a large sparkler.
The dinner guests included members of several other expeditions: the Mut Temple project (http://pages.jh.edu/~egypttoday/), the Djehuty Project (http://www.excavacionegipto.com), and of course, the Chicago House team (https://oi.uchicago.edu/research/projects/epigraphic-survey#House), and we got to hear what they are all working on this season, which is always a treat. As always, we had an absolutely lovely time.
